Description
I don't usually like to do characters that other people will turn up to cosplay events as, but when I watched Tangled, I decided to bend that rule. I absolutely ADORE Tangled and watched it in the cinema 3 times, so I'm going to do it too, just hopefully better than some of the so-so to rather shit versions I've seen so far on the web.

The bodice is made of lilac cotton, with beige mesh for the sleeves, mid-purple thin satin capped shoulder sleeves and coral ribbons for the stripes. The skirt is made of a deep magenta purple-ish satin, with a white cotton lining beneath and lace edging.

I still need to buy fabric paint and find a suitable fabric for the central piece of the skirt. My dear chameleon plushie pal Pascal has arrived, so that's one item I don't need to worry about, and my long golden wig is in the post. Should I braid my hair or keep it down my back? I'm undecided, and frankly not looking forward to hunting down the exact fabric flowers for the braid (yes, everything has to be EXACT, down to the last detail, or I don't do it).

Wish me luck! :)

Journal

Bought the wig! (Posted 29th March 2011)

I just ordered my wig... it's 48 inches long, the longest I can find. It's coming from China, so with 2 months to go, that should be ample time for it to reach me in time for May Expo. So exciting! :D

Bought materials, Pascal has arrived! (Posted 27th March 2011)

I'm so excited... after 3 hours spent shopping in Shepherd's Bush, I have bought all the fabric I need for my Tangled costume. The total damage is around £30, but I think it's worth it, because after hours of matching fabrics with my friends, all the colours and textures are exactly right :D

In other news, Pascal (a.k.a. expensive official Disney chameleon plushie) has arrived from America, just as I was about to leave work to go shopping - nice timing! He cost £13 but he's worth it I think :)
